In the wake of Tuesday night鈥檚 election, we鈥檝e definitely seen some not-so-awesome things, like these scary words and acts of hate, but we鈥檝e also seen some pretty cool things to come out of our collective fear of the unknown, like this fashion house鈥檚 generous聽gesture and Miley Cyrus鈥檚 hopeful revolution.


Now, another seriously awesome act of positivity is giving us reason to smile.

An NYC resident named Matthew 鈥淟evee鈥 Chavez has started a movement he鈥檚 calling Subway Therapy, which is essentially a giant Post-It board for those with thoughts and ideas to get off their chest to get them out. And that鈥檚 not all: Though Matthew provides subway riders with pens and Post-Its at scheduled days/times, he鈥檚 also on hand to be an ear to those without someone to turn to with their heavier thoughts or feelings (or even just those that need a little EXTRA support RN).


鈥淪ubway Therapy is about making people smile, laugh, and feel less stress,鈥 Matthew鈥檚 Website reads. 鈥淚f someone wants to get something off their chest or has a burning question, I鈥檓 happy to be there for them. I believe that people grow and learn through dynamic conversation.鈥

So how did people react? Some took the wall as a joke, writing things like 鈥淣ot the father,鈥 or 鈥淗arambe 2020鈥 and others used it as a space to vent (鈥淔*ck Donald Trump!鈥), but most were incredibly inspiring and uplifting.

鈥淣egative is no way to live!鈥 one said, as another echoed the sentiments with 鈥淒on鈥檛 let them break you. Stay strong and channel your anger into POSITIVITY.鈥
